Nanoenzymes: from rationalities design to biomedical applications

Host: N. Yang

Nanozymes, nanomaterials with enzyme-like activities, with high structural stability, adjustable catalytic activity, functional diversity, recyclability and feasibility in large-scale preparation, have become a hot spot in the field of artificial enzymes in recent years, and are expected to become potential surrogates and competitors for natural enzymes in biomedical applications. With the development of in-depth research and a wide range of application requirements, creating nanozymes with catalytic performance comparable or even surpassing natural enzymes has been the key research topic in this field. In this talk, I will first introduce the finding and the concept of nanozymes. Some rational design strategies for highly-active nanozymes that inspired by natural enzymes will be presented. In addition, our latest studies utilizing the unique properties of nanozymes for biomedical applications will be particularly introduced.

Dr. Kelong Fan received his Ph.D. degree in cell biology from the Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2014. After which he stayed to further pursue 3 years postdoc training and 2 years of associate professor work experience before attaining a full professor position in 2019. He is interested in exploring the novel functions and applications of nanozyme in biomedicine, with top priority to design functional nanozyme by learning from nature, and to develop novel strategies for disease theranostics. He now serves as Associate Editor of Exploration and Frontiers in Chemistry.

Our results reveal the contribution of mechanical forces on the regulation of nucleus size.
